OVID – 19 UPDATE
“from Alberta Soccer – https://albertasoccer.com/”
Dear Alberta Soccer Membership
As the governing body of soccer in Alberta the safety of players, coaches, referees and spectators is our utmost priority. In this regard the Alberta Soccer Risk Management Committee undertook a risk assessment relating to the impact of the COVID -19 outbreak on the upcoming Alberta Provincial Championships. The Committee recommended to the Alberta Soccer Board of Directors to postpone all remaining 2020 Indoor Provincial Championships.
As a leader in Provincial sport, Alberta Soccer is motivated to assist Albertans to remain safe and healthy. By minimizing contact with infected individuals and/or surfaces we are supporting the Alberta Provincial Government’s endeavor to contain the spread of the virus within our cities and towns.
While we understand that this decision may be disappointing to many Alberta Soccer Members, we ultimately decided that the many uncontrollable factors considered pose too much of a risk to the health and safety of Alberta Soccer Stakeholders and all Albertans. Further details on the re-scheduling of the 2020 Alberta Soccer Indoor Provincial Championships will be shared with the Membership as soon as possible.
The Alberta Soccer Board of Directors
